Opportunity Invited

TLS 365 Experience #267
November 22, 2017

Laying out the canvas labyrinth for a walk later on in the afternoon, I set up the room and then went about finishing tasks. Sitting in an adjacent room working, small light hearted could be heard and as the sound escalated and endured, it piqued curiosity, so I went to investigate and nearing, the sound of children playing were coming from the room with the labyrinth. Not wishing to disturb, I peeked an eye around the corner and found three young children skipping about and playing on the labyrinth. Observing from a distance it brought a smile to see then run around and stir up the energy.

Walking back to the work at hand, the thought occurred, when you lay out a labyrinth, you invite all kinds of opportunity.

Walking to Clarity

TLS 365 Experience #135
July 13, 2017

I went to the glass labyrinth today in Kansas City. It was a different application to walk enclosed and even though their was no ceiling and the walls were glass, their was a feeling of being enclosed. It felt maze like in the wondering, as I could see the reflections around me, though it wasn’t always clear where to go until I reached an endpoint. The eyes alone can deceive, though when we just follow the path, the way is quite evident.

Small children were stirring up the energy with their playful adventures running throughout and at one point a young boy ran straight into the glass and fell back. He was stunned at first though got up and continued running only to come to the same point later on and repeated the same experience. When he went around again, he avoided impact successfully.

We were on the same path with our distractions, yet on a path of clarity to resolve them.

Kissing the Earth

TLS 365 Experience #74
May 13, 2017

I much appreciate the quote by Thich Nhat Han, “Walk as if your footsteps kiss the Earth”.

I offered an experience of the labyrinth to a group of young children.

They wanted to play, run and feel the call of their natural youth and it seemed a shame to interrupt this wild and wonderful moment. So instead of subjecting them to conformity, I had them run around the labyrinth then through it in a variety of ways adding yelps of joy and calls of glorious freedoms. They really enjoyed this and when they had their fill of frolic and fun, I pretended with them playfully about the many ways we might walk the labyrinth. As their attentiveness grew I asked them to consider how they might feel as if the Earth had kissed every footstep they made.

The interaction and display on the labyrinth was priceless and uplifting… without a camera, I had only my heart to capture the moment.
